Based on a 1902 work of post-apocalyptic fiction by the forgotten Matthew Phipps Shiel, The World, the Flesh and the Devil imagines humankind having to start from scratch, starting with survivors Inger Stevens, Mel Ferrer, and Harry Belafonte, then at the height of his leading man fame. The struggle for survival is made all the more difficult as sexual competition and racial animus develop between the threesome, with the future of humanity hanging in the balance.
